Drama - Monologues

Year 13 Monologues

Year 13 students presented self-devised performances as the first part of their drama programme.
A wide range of characters appeared including Charlie Chaplin, Amelia Earhart, Johnny Depp and Joan of Arc.
Mirren Callaghan took the title character from “Alice in Wonderland” and had her meet with her real life inspiration, Alice Liddle. Hannah Koeck crash landed in
a field as Amelia Earhart, and Veronica Maughan questioned her faith as Joan of Arc.

Drama - Year 11 Play

Next week the Drama department presents two plays performed by Year 11 students. This will be a first public performance for many of the students.
“The Song of Bobby Zack” is a New Zealand play by Gary Henderson.  On New Year’s Day sixteen-year-old Bobby Zack is told she has exactly one year to live. She embarks on an incident-packed odyssey, resolving to have a dynamic and exciting year that will outweigh death.

“The Book of Everything”, based on the novel of the same name tells the story of Thomas Klopper aged nearly ten, and his struggle to cope with the real world and the world of his imagination. Students from the Theatre technology class have organised costumes and props for the two plays.  They are seen here putting together the large-scale Book of Everything.

The plays run from 3-6th April, tickets are $5/$10 from Student Services.
